Windows 7: Ordered Dell is this OK

Ordered Dell is this OK

I've given in and bought a new Dell - now not knowing much about new - went for Dell as had it before and price was good. Got it for $703 - was asking $1099 with 20% $879 and then a farther discount at check out of 20%.

Its an Dell Inspiron Desktop 3671 9th Gen i5-9400 8GB 1TB NVIDIA GT 730 Win 10 Home
20% off* with code PDELLSAVE. T&Cs apply.

Hopefully that is OK system and not discounted because its a patsy! I am "a casual user" according to internet sales.
Not being delivered til 7th Feb - 10th Feb - tell me if its a lemon so can change it for another etc.

UPC: 884116361220
SKU: I36715220BLKM
Brand: Dell Consumer
MPN: I3671-5220BLK

It seems you did quite well pricewise.

Can't comment on anything else because I don't have one of those machines.

Windows 7 Professional, SP1, x86

In the commercial world, where computers are used in place of the old Cash Register in small businesses, Dell has the greater market share. I'm told that those machines are of better quality than those sold to the general public (home users).
But in the Super stores, either IBM or NCR are the primary players.

But my own experience as a Computer tech. rates Dell at the very bottom of the heap.

I've had direct contact with Dell over PC's that have failed and they would only give excuses like, "that PC had a bad motherboard" or "that PC had a bad CPU chip". They made no effort to replace either PC.

So in both cases, I wound up building a new PC for that customer.
It seemed like Dell would build PC's with second grade parts and just hope they would last till the warranty expired.

I have nine computers, and none of them are from Dell. If someone gave me one, it would go right to Electronic Reclamation.

Good luck to you mate,

I, as with SIW2, cannot comment on the particular model you are awaiting delivery of, however my personal experience with Dell in supply and setup for hundreds of units including Servers Workstations and general Office use systems has been generally good. There were issues with early models (late 80's and early 90's), where as with some others they went the route of manufacturing their own cases and case styles which meant that they required bespoke components EG power supplies and even motherboards, when they did fail, but this was rare and their worldwide network of offices meant that my end users were served well.

The have more recently standardized, as have others, to use standard cases and thus the old issues no longer apply, and I would have no issues recommending them for home or business use. Obviously check warranties and check in your greater area as to reviews of the particular model but you should be OK.

I know that locally here in the UK as the PC is being ordered online, it would be covered by distance selling regulations which would give the buyer rights to return the unit if it was not as advertised, Check your local laws for your rights

Is this it?

Seems like a decent setup, and the reviews are largely favorable. Looks like a good buy to me.

Windows 7 Home 32 bit

Dell computers are ok. I have 10 pc's and 3 of them are dell, but I find the MoBo's on them go fast, so I would say Ibm or one of those commercial computers would be better. otherwise that one is good (I never buy computers new because i'm cheap but enjoy your self!)

Windows 7 HP 64

Unfortunately it doesn't have a SSD.
You should buy a Small SSD to have Windows and programs on it and use the HDD for data only.
A 120G SSD (120G) will cost less than US$25 and a 256G less than US$35. Crucial-BX500
A SSD is about 5x faster than a HDD so the computer will boot in less than 20 sec and open programs at a blink of an eye.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I honestly hope their quality has improved over the years. I have an Optiplex 745 on hand to use Windows XP for games that dislike 7 for whatever reason(especially 16-bit programs that will not run on a 64-bit OS). The Dell mouse it came with is a bit poor- it will sometimes momentarily lose connection and the pointer will jump to the corner. And despite being released in 2007 the onboard graphics chip can't even run Morrowind(a 2002 game) without graphical glitches. It's also a "desktop" case so I find trying to locate compatible parts for it harder than it should be just because they went small.

It's not given me a great impression of the brand if you have to put in basic upgrades just to get it on spec for the year it was released.
